What is Affiliate Marketing?
Affiliate Marketing is an arrangement between an online merchant, such as Amazon, Weight Watchers or Discover Card, and an affiliate (that’s you), in which the affiliate earns a commission for promoting products and services for a merchant, or generating sales, leads or clicks for the merchant’s web site.
To put it simply, you join a merchant as an affiliate (it’s free), you promote the product(s) on your blog, and third you make a commission. That’s the concept, now let’s look at the rest.
Our coaching program is focused on, but not exclusive to promoting products and services for a merchant, using a website/blog.
Who wants to give you money?
In your wallet you probably have a credit card or two. Did you know that many credit card companies will pay you substantial commissions for each visitor that you send to their site who completes a credit card application.
There are car and motorcycle manufacturers and dealers that have affiliate programs, and the commissions are substantial.
The largest online merchant, Amazon has been selling through Affiliates for 20+ years. In fact I have been an affiliate (or as they like to refer to us – associate) since 1996, and an eBay affiliate since 1998. You don’t stay with a company that long unless you’re making decent money from them.
How much you earn depends on the products you choose to promote, and within the Affiliate Income Coaching program you learn exactly how to find the best affiliate programs and the best products and services to promote.
Brand-name merchants want YOU to promote their products!
Here is a short list of some of the BIG brand-name companies that use affiliate programs to promote their products online.
Amazon Staples eBay Eddie Bauer Gateway Gap
KMart TimeLife Weight Watchers SONY PetSmart Old Navy
PayLess Shoes Barnes & Noble Dell Dollar Rent-a-Car Discover Card
1-800-GOT-JUNK 4 Wheel Drive Hardware Abe’s of Maine
Ashley Stewart Banana Republic Loft
The list is the size of a telephone book, and think of the number of products and services being offered. Mind boggling. Any niche you desire.
Many companies use Affiliate Networking companies to handle their affiliation and affiliate tools. Here are some of the major affiliate networking companies:
– Rakuten Marketing
– eBayPartner Network
– CJ Affiliate
Most online businesses, and a fast growing list of offline businesses have an affiliate program and they all need affiliates!
Here’s a story about an affiliate marketer. I am a personal friend. He gets a lot of specialized ‘older’ car parts that he takes apart, cleans up and offers on eBay. He also posts each product as it’s ready to be sold on his blog. He has an affiliate tracking program on his blog, and he has affiliates that promote his stuff. He pays the affiliates 50% of what he nets after costs. The average price of his ‘stuff’ is $300, so if you’re an affiliate and the purchase came through you, you get around $130.
How he works it, is that he first posts on his blog and sends an email to his affiliates telling them it what is has posted and it will be there for a week. If not sold, he moves it to eBay. His problem, he tells me, is that he only move about 5% of the ‘stuff’ to eBay because he sells 95% off his blog. Some problem.
There are also programs like Google Adsense and other contextual advertising networks that you can use to make money online as an affiliate marketer.
Affiliate Networks such as Commission Junction, Linkshare and the Google Affiliate Network exist for the purpose of bringing merchants and affiliates together.
There are even Magazines devoted entirely to affiliate marketing.
Thousands upon THOUSANDS of people just like you make money every day through affiliate marketing. Better yet, THOUSANDS of affiliates have quit their go to work jobs to go full-time, and yes, several earn in excess of a MILLION of dollars a year.
Wikipedia reported that the research team from Marketing Sherpa estimated that affiliates worldwide earned $6.5 billion.
Hello, I’m Chuck Camroux and I am an affiliate marketer. In fact I’ve been doing affiliate marketing since 1996. I don’t call myself an expert, guru or super affiliate. I am just a plain ol’ very successful affiliate marketer with a ton of information about the incredible income opportunity that affiliate marketing offers people.
That’s why I decided to build this coaching program so others just like you, can participate in this opportunity. The single question that I get most often from those who live around me, or contact me by email from some of the most intriguing places in the world. is “how do I become an affiliate marketer.” Then they usually disclose me that they a not techie people and have no idea about blogs and such.
Let me state without hesitation, that if you have a computer (new or old, laptop or desktop, Mac or PC) and an Internet connection and a little time (like a 1/2 hour to 2 hours a day), you too can be an affiliate marketer. How much can you make? $100, $300, or $3,000 plus a month. The choice is yours because it will depend on how much time you want to devote and the products or services you are promoting.
What exactly will you learn?
There are 13 lessons, one a week for 13-weeks, and you will become a well dressed affiliate marketer. Here’s an outline of the first six lessons.
In Lesson 1 you learn what you need to be prepared to work on your affiliate marketing dream, with the most chance of making the big bucks. You’ll learn how to research niche topics looking for markets to promote, and has hungry buyers looking for the products you will promote.

Lesson 4 continues the site building aspect of this course on affiliate marketing. It covers two lessons because it is critical that you get it all right and complete. In this lesson you will be continuing to build a dog training site, with supplied written copy, pictures, etc. You’ll need this so you can learn how to insert products that are available from your merchants.
Lesson 4 more about building your site, but focused on the content (written, pictures, graphics and video) along with the beginnings of marketing for your site. Advanced keyword research, more WordPress setup, site planning, product research, and other site building related topics.

Product selection is extremely important as it can make or break your efforts as an affiliate marketer. You will also start to learn all about SEO (search engine optimization) which is very important especially since you will be depending on free, targeted traffic.
In these first lessons, you’ll learn how to get free search engine traffic (visitors to your site) and why a low volume doesn’t mean low income.

Hi, my name is Chuck Camroux.
I have been an affiliate marketer since 1996. A full 20 years, and still going strong. Affiliate Marketing wasn’t my first career, that was first a disc-jockey in the early days of rock ‘n’ roll. For 14 years I was behind the mic pumping out the hits on 50,000 watt radio stations in both Canada and the U.S. I went on to become a program director, manager, president and CEO of some major radio properties, but I never gave up the entrepreneurial spirit.
I know what it feels like to want to reach up into the clouds and new exciting adventures. I also know what it’s like to build a family and having to take care of a wife, kids, including a challenged child, while keeping a roof over our heads and food on the table. I learned everything I could about computers years before the web, and when it came along, everything I could about this fabulous things called the Internet.
I had spent years in traditional media who’s income was, and still is based on referral advertising. We told people about products, events and services and they paid us for the mentions. It’s called commercials or advertising. When a company called CDNOW came along with affiliate marketing in the mid-ninties I jumped on board because to me it was just referral marketing on a different medium. Then came Amazon and eBay which really took affiliate marketing main stream. It was exciting, and still is today, and the rewards can be incredible.
What is truly exciting about affiliate marketing is that almost everyone can get into it and make money. You only need a computer and an Internet connection. Sure there’s more to it, but the basis of the possibilities are just two things, a computer and an Internet connection. But you can easily be left out, watching others make money, unless you take action. We are in the information age and information can set you free. People are looking for everything you can imagine, and companies are doing everything they can to be the ones that provide it. These companies need you to tell people about their products and services, and for that they will pay you a commission.
If you don’t take action to improve your life and your business opportunities, you can’t expect to change your circumstances.
Being First Isn’t Always Best
Being at the forefront of technology isn’t a great way to go for many people. It’s hard. You’re constantly learning how to use technology, but you have very few teachers. That’s because it’s new to everyone and the computer age and Information age both fell into the huge learning curves. Many people dropped out of learning all about it, and many were forced into the technology, or starve. Seems almost impossible today with everyone carrying around a computer more powerful than the one you see just above. It’s called a cell phone, smartphone or mobile phone. No matter what you call it, people today can’t live without it.
The same goes for making money online. You have to learn about it and put in the time and effort to become good at your business. You wouldn’t become a clerk in a shoe store without learning all you could about shoes, sizes, types, and how to display them, store them and promote your shop. The same applies to the Internet. If you want to create a profitable business, making a good living online, you have to put in the time, energy and work. It isn’t easy, in fact you’ll often say, this is too hard. But once you master the opportunities online, you’ll not only find it easy, but you’ll love the money you can make.
That’s the reason I decided to start the Affiliate Income Coaching program, to help folks flatten out the learning curve and speed up the income process. My approach is to have you learn as you do, which in turn speeds up the income opportunities. It isn’t a push a button and make huge amounts of money. That doesn’t exist, but building a solid foundation and having some patience will turn into a steady cash flow. Over time that cash flow will become huge, exciting and life changing.
Be Honest & Full of Amazing Content
The most successful affiliate blogs are honest and provide incredible content packed with value for the reader.
Great affiliate blogs show what they are promoting in action, write in-depth reviews and provide actionable content that their visitors can see results from which means that their visitors click on their links and buy.
These affiliate blogs stand behind what they promote and more often than not have used the product themselves and their intimate knowledge of the product comes through. Because of this their visitors are trusting and develop a relationship with them and they are much more likely to press the buy from someone like that than a random internet stranger.
Affiliate blogs are a great way to build up trust and a positive reputation which is the easiest way to promote affiliate products. Affiliate blogs allow you to easily build an email list that you can use to further grow your business by sending traffic back to your site to promote. Through actionable content, case studies, and reviews you can make affiliate commissions with relative ease.
We’ll show you how to overcome the time it takes to build your reputation for being a trusted marketer with high quality content.
80% of your content will not be promoting your products, but you have to put in a lot of work into writing and creating new posts that don’t directly create income – though do help with your credibility, traffic and building your email list. We’ll show you how to do this without breaking a sweat.
Granted, the right way is not the fast way to make money online, but it is the way you make money year after year with less and less work. Remember, there is no straight line to financial success. Our experience through 20+ years of affiliate marketing will cut your learning time and path to success dramatically.
Why Affiliate Income Coaching
We’ll show you how to build a solid reputation with quality content, in-depth tutorials, how to articles, video guides, openness, honesty and trust.
- Your affiliate income doesn’t have to come from Internet marketing, it can and should come from food, cooking, cars, fishing, health, muscle building, and whatever else you’re interested in.

Remove All Risk…
If you haven’t established enough credibility yet, here’s another chance.
You remove all risk by assuming the risk onto yourself.
Give your customer a…100% “No-Questions-Asked”, Money-back guarantee for the longest period possible.
This helps avoid upsset customers and proves you’re a stand-up person. Money back guarantees also help spread good word of mouth and clear any mental blocks the buyer may be experiencing. Use a nice “Guarantee Seal” graphic and make this area “loud and proud”.
